I think you're missing the point here. Bunny hopping is not a feature or use of the ysalamari, but an exploitation of the game.
Anyway, in ffa, it is a bonus to pick it up, not a disadvantage. Remember, you are immune to enemy force powers as well. Also, the reason why CTY is better than CTF is that the carrier can't just use speed to get away really quickly. It negates the point if the carrier is able to move quickly as well as the people trying to use force speed to catch up.
